Webinar - Leveraging on standardisation for building data aggregation and analytics

Share this Post:

Hosted by BUILD UP, the BIGG project organises its workshop “Leveraging on standardisation for building data aggregation and analytics” the next 8 November from 10.30H to 12.00H. The session will be celebrated with their sister projects: MATRYCS, BEYOND and BUILTHUB.


Despite the increase in the use of energy and the evident environmental benefits of having more share of renewable energy sources (RES) in buildings, the adoption of both energy efficiency measures and RES is highly influenced by its cost and the impact on occupants’ comfort.


The real implementation of actions to reduce energy consumption in buildings is confronted with the complexity of managing their internal energy systems, the overall target of cost savings and the respect of the levels of comfort expected by the buildings occupants. BIGG aims at demonstrating the application of big data technologies and data analytic techniques for the complete buildings life-cycle of more than 4.000 buildings in 6 large-scale pilot test-beds. 


The scope of BIGG is summarized in 4 bullet points:


  • Building performance monitoring
  • Energy efficiency investment
  • Energy grid support
  • Policy support

The aim of the discussion will be to:


  • Share each project’s vision of contribution to standardisation;
  • Identify the common subjects and ideas that could be pushed to standardisation;
  • Identify similar structures among the projects that could help to influence the standards; 
  • Co-define together the founding principles and operational mechanisms of the Community of Standardisation.
